EPITAPH

When I am dead and gone,
You’ll find among my belongings:
    An incomplete poem,
    An open book and
    Remnants of a broken dream!

I lived my life complete
And what did I earn?
A flower-laden casket, 
A tombstone and
A few sighs of relief!

My loved ones did
what best they could—
Wished me eternal peace
Shed few regretful tears 
Then turned and walked away!

That’s my legacy--
A few fond memories
A few heartbreaks
Some random good deeds
And the solemn sunset;

From the dust I rose
Into the dust I return,
Like a wind I came 
Like a whisper I go!
